A young woman has spoken about her heartbreak following the death of tragic biker Trafford Quantrill-Stott on Friday night, which came just three months after she lost another close friend.

Olivia Lisle, 19, was still reeling from the death of fellow teenager Brad Aldridge, who died in a car crash in Undercliffe at the start of February.

Her world has been rocked further by the death of 21-year-old Clayton resident Mr Quantrill-Stott, who died in a motorcycle crash just after 7pm on Friday, after his vehicle struck a traffic island.

CCTV footage posted on social media, which the Telegraph & Argus has chosen not to publish, appears to show Mr Quantrill-Stott’s bike go out of control onto the wrong side of the road shortly before he came off the machine.

A police car can be seen in the footage, after the motorcycle and rider disappear from view, although the reason for that has yet to be revealed.

Three pedestrians then sprint down the pavement, seemingly looking to assist following the collision.

The young biker’s subsequent death has seen many offering their condolences, with Ms Lisle’s among the most heartfelt.

Speaking to the Telegraph & Argus, she said: “He was a good friend. I’ve known him since I was 11.

“There was a little group of us who used to meet up on Friday nights. We’d all have a McDonalds and then go ice skating afterwards.

“It was a proper laugh and those memories will never go. Now we’re older, we’d started going out to nightclubs together.

“He meant a lot to me and it’s been a horrible weekend. He was such a kind hearted person who was always there to help others.

“We’re all so shocked that we won’t be seeing him dancing round with his sunglasses on on a weekend.”

Ms Lisle, from Ravenscliffe, was determined to do Mr Quantrill-Stott proud after his death and she organised a balloon release in Great Horton last night in his memory.

She said: “When we lost Brad in a car accident, I thought the balloon release then was a really nice thing to get everybody together to say goodbye."

Ms Lisle confirmed that plenty of fundraising would be taking place too.

She said: “We’re raising money to cover Trafford’s funeral costs and I’ll be doing things like bonus balls in the coming weeks, as we’re trying to raise money for his mum and sister, who were his priority.

“I know his sister quite well too and she’s very upset. She’s only 17 or 18 too.”

Several other young friends shared their devastation on Facebook.

Nathan Tatum wrote: “Still doesn’t feel real mate. Heaven has gained the strongest angel. Sleep tight my brother until we meet again my friend. Missed but never forgotten.”

Meanwhile, Chloe Gillespie posted: “RIP Trafford I can’t believe I’m hearing this.

“It’s shocking you’ve been taken way too soon, you will be missed by everyone. We all loved you and I just can’t believe what I’ve just read. Thinking about your mum and your sister, you will never be forgotten. I won’t forget about all the good times we’ve had together.
